AllMusic Review by

While it may not be as noteworthy as the band's first couple of albums, Set the World on Fire, the third outing from Annihilator, is a respectable effort nonetheless. Perhaps looking to make the album an easier pill to swallow, Roadrunner has reissued it as a bundle with In Command, the Canadian thrashers' 1996 live album that features performances from around the U.S. while the band was on tour in 1989-1990. While neither of these albums is particularly essential on its own, this kind of bundle makes for the perfect opportunity for completists to fill out their collections, and for thrash enthusiasts to explore what was happening outside of the genre's legendary "Big Four."
